A sleek BESTÅ TV Unit inspired by other BESTÅ hacks.
Giving credit where credit is due. I took ideas from these existing hacks on the site: BESTÅ TV stand with seating option and I gave it my BESTÅ shot TV console. Thanks, guys!
IKEA Items Used:
- 2x 120cm BESTÅ Frames
- 1x 60cm BESTÅ Frame
- Assorted BESTÅ Drawers, Shelves, Doors etc.
- Joined Oak panels from Worktop Express
- Custom length legs (B&Q)
The BESTÅ TV Unit hack:
The process was quite straightforward, cutting the wood to length correctly to make 250cm long TV unit with 2x 120cm BESTÅ Frames together, and a single unit that could be easily repositioned around the room.
The wood was laid flat, and the BESTÅ Unit tops glued and screwed to the wood. The side pieces needed securing well because they would take the weight of the unit. Adjustable legs were added at the centre-rear to take some extra weight in the middle of the longer uint.
The only tricky part was making it upside down and making sure all pieces could be taken apart. It would otherwise be too heavy to manoeuvre into the house.
